    I'm a WWII plane addict but I love that paint scheme. Stick the tape your shirt before you use it on the model, the lint will keep it from pulling the paint.

      Thanks Shirty. The Yak is a "sleeper" with hotter than stock 13 blade XRP fan/motor combo. On 6s it has some serious wow factor. Hoping to some day get some video of it on 6s.

      • After assembling the 262 recently, and fixing a boat load of issues out of the box by the way, I went and modded the flaps. The original had just too much warp on the trailing edge of the wing. Plus split flaps on a Schwalbe look...well, I know there are a lot of compromises on this bird. But I cannot understand the split flaps. Anyway, after carving out the pieces with a small jig, I glued them together, puttied, then painted with spray cans. I do not own an airbrush yet.

              • The Tigercat is officially white primer now. Thought I'd try the Krylon Foam Primer, works pretty good, one thing though, with a plane the size of the Tigercat, get two cans, stock foam seems to absorb anything you put on it at first like a dry sponge. A small amount of putty work to do around the tail fuse joint as the white really makes it show, it was barely noticeable when it was blue.
                Stay tuned

                  • I said it before, but man that looks good Brandon. Good news for me is I've teed up a mate at my club to teach me to airbrush, we'll have a go when I get the a10, so hopefully I'll have something to contribute to this thread in the future rather than admiring (and just a little jealous), of all your blokes custom schemes.

                      • Just picture pre-school kindy paintings and you'll get a good idea of my work...

                        mate, I'm coming to the USA, it's just a matter of when. (And if old mate trumpy lets me in lol), but I'd be mightily insulted if we don't get together for a fly. That goes for most of you on the squawk. A lot of good blokes here I'd love to join for a session or ten.

                          • I think most you yanks fly mode 2 don't yas? Most, (not all), but most us Aussies are mode 1 over here. (Would you expect anything less given we drive on the other side of the road, use the metric system, and water drains the correct way?) But I'll bring my radio and a few receivers and we can sort that out quick enough...

                            ps: if you don't bring a blue nose, I will.

                            • Hey, sound like a Shirty party!
                              Shirty does the US and we'll never be the same!
                              Actually, I was thinking, with the comments soemwhere on the thread about Aussies not drinking Fosters as advertised, maybe there room in Australia for a new beer.

                              Hey, I'd drink it 'til I felt

                              And there's your slogan,"If you don't bring a blue nose, I will"

                                      • That Cat looks great! Never been a fan of the all dark blue. Too hard to see orientation. The lighter color actually brings out more detail and makes it look larger.
